The 22 12 months previous scored 21 objectives in 46 video games final season as Porto went on to win the league and cup double.
Regardless of his membership’s success, the Brazilian was outshone within the scoring division by Benfica’s Darwin Nunez, who has subsequently joined Liverpool.
Nonetheless, Evanilson needed to share attacking duties at Porto with Mehdi Taremi, who weighed in with 26 objectives of his personal final time period.
In accordance with File and corroborated by O Jogo, United have already submitted the massive bid through superagent, Jorge Mendes.
And while the Dragons fee the participant at €100 million, the report says they’d be ready to simply accept €70 million ought to PSG’s bid to signal midfielder Vitinha fall by.
“The blue and whites’ bosses had the gross sales of Fábio Vieira and Vitinha agreed, so the optimistic steadiness within the 2021/22 monetary 12 months was already assured,” File explains.
“Nonetheless, PSG are late in concluding the signing of Vitinha and the newest information, from France, is that the Parisians intend to affix the race for the Argentine Enzo Fernández, at present a goal outlined by Benfica and whose value may very well be round half.
“If Vitinha stays, and whether it is vital to hold out one other sale earlier than the top of the 12 months, on June 30, the truth that Man United have bolstered their curiosity in Evanilson, of whose contract FC Porto holds 80%, results in the Brazilian being thought of as negotiable.”
It’s a whole lot of ifs, buts and maybes, and a curious declare. Nonetheless, the truth that it’s being reported by a number of sources provides it some credibility.
